Fundraising ideas

Thinking about fundraising but need some inspiration? How about a dinner party, cake sale or a quiz night? Or something a little more quirky, like a gorilla run (in full gorilla suit) or a head shave?

Think about what kind of fundraising activity inspires you. What is likely to interest your potential supporters? Take a look at some of the ideas below - they're all activities that have been tried and tested by our supporters.

Casual days

Trivia nights

Trivia nights

Quiz nights are always great fun, whether amongst friends in a social setting or with work colleagues.
